Replacing Your Water Heater in UtahLike all appliances, water heaters have a limited life span. As it ages and begins to lose efficacy, your water heater will produce less hot water and may not meet all of your household's needs. Older water heaters become prone to leaks as their tanks become corroded from mineral and sediment build-up resulting from untreated hard water in the tank. Water heater leaks can lead to difficult clean-up and potentially costly repairs; not only can a leak directly harm your floors, unaddressed leaks may cause your water heater's tank to burst, leading to extensive damage. To avoid water heater leaks and bursts, Beehive Plumbing recommends flushing your water heater's tank at least once annually. Many Utah homeowners do not know how to tell if their water heater needs replacing. If any of the following is true of your current water heater, it is time to think about water heater replacement:
- Your water heater is not producing enough hot water to meet your household's needs.
- The water throughout your home does not get hot enough or at all.
- Your current water heater is over 12 years old.
- The water coming out of your faucet appears rusty.
- Your water heater is experiencing chronic leaks.
- Your water heater's tank appears rusty or deteriorated.
